Rihanna: Creeping up on Madonna’s #1 Singles Status
Thanks to her brand new “Diamonds” track (12th overall), Ri-Ri will achieve the coveted spot as of next week’s figures. From here, the “Umbrella” songstress will continue to try and climb the ranks, and at this rate it seems likely she’ll catch up with Michael Jackson’s 13 #1 hits.
But she’ll have to really pull out all the stops if she hopes to eclipse Mariah Care (18 #1s) and the legendary Beatles (20 #1s).
Rihanna is also the fastest female to reach 12 #1 sings, having accomplished the feat in six years and seven months.
